When seeking to become the expert in your niche, it’s important to realize it’s not going to happen overnight, as it just might take a little longer than that.
You’re going to have to do your time like everyone else – learning your own computer, building websites,writing content all leads to you becoming the expert that you want to become.
However, don’t let the daunting hill ahead of you stop you. Before you know it…
In very short order you’ll be at the top of that hill and you’ll never look back. So below you’ll find a few simple things you can start doing to become the online marketing expert in your niche or space if you will.
Start Reading Books
There are likely books and opinions out there already on your niche or one that interest you. It’s important to read and soak in a variety of ideas from those who are already experts. Down the road you’ll find most successful marketers read about other marketers in their field.
By knowing the prevailing wisdom and how it came to be will help you on your journey to becoming an expert, and will also aid you in forming your own thoughts and opinions along the way.
Its easy to find the books you’ll want by going to Amazon and typing in something like: niche marketing books, online marketing books etc. Then just pick up one or two. Its that easy.
As you are learning from other experts, you’ll want to implement what you’ve learned. There is no such thing as an expert on a topic who has not tried it or done it. Put into practice the theories you’re learning about. Test out some of your own ideas, see what works and what doesn’t work.
This is the foundation by which you’ll become a sought-out expert, because you have proof that you did x-y-z and it worked or did not work. And while we’re talking about this, be prepared to fail. Don’t be afraid to fail, we all have so know we all feel your pain.
This is just part of the learning curve, besides in failing you will have learned something! (how not to do that again)
Join Mastermind Groups
A mastermind group usually consists of a leader who is an expert in a particular niche. You don’t just join a group that is in your niche; instead join a group that is “designed” to help you achieve in your own niche.
For example, if you need to learn more about public speaking to help promote your ideas, join a public speaking “mastermind” group, instead of just a public speaking group. Sometimes its hard to tell but their out there, look around a bite.
Take Some Courses or Lessons
Today you don’t have to even leave your house to take courses to learn the things you want to know. You can take both accredited and unaccredited courses to become an niche expert. Courses are offered by even MIT that are not accredited.
The important thing is that you learn what you need to learn in a manner that enables you to learn a topic quickly.
Another way is to find those successful marketers or learning platforms out there that are reputable, some of them are mentors/coaches and have online lessons in your niche you can go through. You might check these educational platforms out first.
Above All-Stay Focused
While you’re involved with learning it can be easy to be distracted from your mission. Your mission is to become an online marketing expert in a particular topic and niche, not to become the best public speaker or the latest socialite on all the social channels.
So don’t get your head turned around just because you find learning something new exciting, you just stay the course.
Find a Mentor or Coach
For some people, getting a mentor/coach that can help them stay focused on doing what they set out to do can be helpful. This will cost like any other education would. But it will train you up in the way you should go and you’ll get there a lot sooner.
The mentor/coach doesn’t have to be an expert in the niche you want expertise in either. Instead they should be an expert in helping people reach their goals, whatever they are.
That said, it does help if the coach is cognizant of your niche/field a little.
Remember your looking for a mentor that walks you through every step of your journey as we briefly discussed in an earlier post. Catch up there if you need to.
You’ve heard your mom say this and I’m backing her up, “Practice makes perfect” and it’s true. The more you practice something and gain experience in something, the more likely you are to become an expert.
Don’t just do it once a week; do it all the time, do whatever it takes every day. It’s said that it takes 10,000 hours of studying and doing something over and over again to become an expert, so don’t waste any time or opportunities.
Most Importantly – Don’t Give Up! Never…
It’s important to persevere and not give up. You may become an actual expert that niche before the public accepts you as an expert. Don’t sweat it.
This is to be expected, but can be difficult to handle.
Just keep going, keep promoting, and keep learning and it will happen. One step forward each day will culminate in gaining what you set out to gain. As you embark on your rise to expert status, you’ll likely find that there are roadblocks impeding your ability to get to the top and “become the expert in your niche”.
But, you can overcome all of them with perseverance and focus on the goals that you have made.
I’m guessing here, but if you’ve read this far your like I was a number of years ago searching for a place to learn all about online marketing. I learned from this place.
If you too are looking to be that niche expert, building websites that garners 1000’s of visitors and sales.
Then I highly recommend you learn from that platform I just linked to. You’ll get all the guidance and mentors you need. I learned everything about online marketing from them and you can actually learn the basics for free. Learn more
Ok, thats all I got… Remember you can do this and I believe in you. 🙂
